A note about serious food allergies

“If they say, why, why… tell them that it's Hunan nature.” It is, indeed, Hunan nature to enrobe a tender salmon fillet with slightly spicy orange sauce. It may or may not be Hunan nature to combine two kinds of peas for one awesomely green side, flavored with a touch of sesame seeds. But it's in our nature to provide a meal like this, that is easy to prepare and full of fresh, light flavors. Why? Enjoying and sharing great food is human nature.
